Locum Vet (Weekends at ECC)


Leeds, England, United Kingdom


Vet Surgeon

Sep 12

A practice in Leeds requires either a

(1) locum - wanting a regular 1 (or 2) weekends per month,


2) Vet - wanting permanent part-time contract (would even consider permanent part-time vets working elsewhere in the region) who would like 1 weekend per month, to work Sat/Sun at the Leeds-based Hospital.


There are three vets on per weekend, so it's an ideal position for vets already working in smaller first opinion practices who would like more ECC / Hospital experience, as they would get the chance to work alongside other vets, giving them the workload or educational opportunities to learn more on the ECC side (without the stress of sole charge!)


Shifts would either be 7:30am - 6pm (10hrs), or 10am - 8:30pm (10hrs) both Saturday and Sunday


Shift would involve - 


(1) hospital in-patient handover with night vet (either 7:30am or 8pm depending on shift), 

(2) emergency-only consulting (we provide OOH support for 15 vets4pets practices in the local area, often closed at weekends), 

(3) ECC surgery and procedures depending on what comes in on the day etc.


We tend to share the clinical, consulting, ECC, hospital in-patient workload out, depending on vet expertise and interest etc. So there's lots of flexibility to gain experience in ECC work as well as general surgery, consulting etc. working alongside a highly motivated, fun, supportive and experienced team.
